Shakespeare Royal Oak is proud to announce auditions for our 2022 Season in Royal Oak’s Starr Jaycee Park. Now in our 22nd year, Michigan’s largest annual outdoor professional theatre festival will feature Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet July 28 – August 7 alongside outdoor Youth Education Programs for elementary through high school students. Registration for youth programs will be available on April 1.
In this professional outdoor production, Romeo and Juliet are survivors of climate crisis and war. Where there once was government, warring factions fight for control of Verona. Yet in this bleak world Juliet discovers love, and dreams of a better life with Romeo. Together they defy the stars; daring to love – and creating beauty in a world where none was promised.
This timely take and professional production will be directed by Stephanie Buck with combat design by Michael Brian Ogden. Auditions are March 26 & 27 at St. John Episcopal Church in Royal Oak located at 26998 Woodward, Royal Oak MI 48067. Registration is required. Actors interested in auditioning should PLEASE CLICK HERE TO REGISTER and learn more about what is required for the audition.

Happy 20th Anniversary Shakespeare Royal Oak!
Shakespeare Royal Oak turned 20 in 2020. Though we could not gather In The Park to celebrate together, our SRO Team collaborated with performers, crew, production staff, and audience members to create special premier messaging and performances to entertain you. Together, we made a Toast to our 20th Anniversary.
Tune in to our YouTube channel. Enjoy the performances and messages where we shared stories, snapshots, memories and moments from seasons past.
Thank you for helping us reach this milestone year. We look forward to returning to Starr Jaycee Park and sharing the beautiful words of the Bard with you on many more summer nights. Until that time …
